I've been playing in IDP leagues for the last couple of years, but I've never ventured into the world of writing about IDP leagues. But one goal I have as a fantasy analyst is to expand my horizon a little each year, and this year that goal is to write some about IDP leagues. To... Read More

ADP Showdown - Marquez Valdes-Scantling vs James Washington

There are a handful of offenses that reliably produce elite fantasy performers year-in and year-out due to the presence of a franchise quarterback. Green Bay and Pittsburgh are among those teams.

Why Tyrell Williams Can Be a Starting Fantasy WR in 2019

Unexpected productivity from a late-round wide receiver in your fantasy drafts can help to pave your way to a championship.

Newly acquired Oakland Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams isn't getting much... Read More

Unorthodox Draft Strategies

One of the biggest factors left out of the draft-day discussion is the makeup of your league.

Quarterback Stat Sleepers - Adjusted Completion Percentage

There are plenty of factors that go into a fantasy quarterback's success in any given season.
